I took a class (Teaching in Higher Ed, ALS 6015) taught by David Way in the fall semester of 2013 to jump-start my teaching portfolio. In this class we created the documents below to develop our teaching philosophy and plan out how we will approach higher education.
Along the way, we read McKeachie's Teaching Tips to learn some of the techniques for designing a course, using assessment, motivating students and teaching in a diverse classroom. Claude Steele's Whistling Vivaldi taught me about the research being done that empirically shows the effect of and how to combat negative social contingencies due to gender, race or age.
I developed the above documents as part of the class. These artifacts show my teaching vision and how it fits in with my research and experience.
